While the EAP does not identify or approach institutions directly, it provides funds for an applicant to locate relevant endangered archival collections, transfer collections to a suitable local archival home where possible, create digital copies of the material, and deposit the copies with local institutions and the British Library. Visitors to the EAP website can also follow the progress of more than 240 projects on the Endangered Archives blog.
